Cyber Security Policy
Policy Direction for WA Government Agencies
Cyber Security policy is currently under review but in the meantime, the WA Government policy on Information Security Management, as endorsed by Cabinet in March 2006, is that:
- The Director General/Chief Executive Officer of each agency is responsible for ensuring their agency implements an appropriate level of information and Internet security.
- Agencies must undertake a periodic assessment of risks to determine what level of information and Internet security is appropriate. This assessment must use a risk management approach that takes account of the Australian and International Standards for information security management, business needs and the risks faced.
- Where an agency determines a business need to implement an ISMS then relevant Australian and International standards must be used.
